i decided to start on the interiour as the cloth on my seats were a fair bit dirty due to it being a country car n farmer joe using the rear seat for carying stuff on . also the cloth was loose due to the thin layer of foam on the underside of the cloth perishing . so i striped down the base of the rear seat . didnt get pic b4 striping but you can see stains on the foam wich were also on the cloth .
Image

after stripping i glued some ofcuts of hood lining material over the foam to replace the thin foam that is usualy on the under side of the cloth

Image


while i had the cover of i gave it a wash then refitted it. you can see the colour dif between the back & the base . b4 doing the back of the seat i want to get a set of head rests in the same material n try and fit them while i got the back apart

Image

also i got hold of some flairs i am toying with the idea if fitting them

had another play late this arvo . decided to attack the air box & get it to breath . i had a piece of intake tube from a 4x4 . lol . it turned out 1 end of it was the same size and shape as the top side of the air box . . so i cut a hole in the side of the box with a grinder . fitted the 4x4 part into the hole then hit it with a hot air gun melting the 2 together . then cut the other end to shap . next is to oversize the intake tube to the throtle body & another tube to direct colder air to the new intake

Wow man, that Xr looks like a really clean car & a great buy @ 2700! Nice pickup, and nice job on cleaning up the rear seat!

Just make sure you POD has a good supply of cool air, otherwise it's a step backwards compared to a good stock airbox with an EA bottom pipe & XH snorkle..

Cheers
